There are many aspects that have defined our turn towards modernity and our plunge into the post-modern era. There are the ways in which we communicate, there are the ways in which we travel, the ways in which we work and live. But nothing has defined our (post-)modern life more than plastic. Plastic, especially the plastic spoon, has become a symbol of our disregard for nature, for our natural surroundings, for our home. It is a symbol of exploitation – the exploitation of resources, of labour. Laila Pakalnina’s Spoon is a film about the toxic snake of modernity. We looked into its eyes once and became hypnotized. Today, we no longer see what this sweet fruit has turned us into. Spoon is a superb document about the lengths to which we go in order to create a small, disposable item.
